Cristian Romero has begun to show why Tottenham signed him from Atalanta in the summer.
The Argentinian was one of Spurs’ best players as they beat Aston Villa in the Premier League at the weekend.
The defender is solid at the back, but one other quality that he doesn’t get enough credit for is pinging long-balls up-field to help Tottenham launch attacks.
The club celebrated this skill on their Twitter account when they posted a video of his highlights in their match against Aston Villa.
In the video, fans could see Romero putting in tackles, making blocks and pinging long balls upfield towards the likes of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane.
From the comments, it is clear to see that the fans recognise the quality of the former Atalanta man and some believe the club needs to find a proper partner for him and Spurs would then have the perfect defence.
Here are some reactions to the video:
